Perhaps the hardest thing to hear is how to be better at something. Whether at work or at school or on a team – everyone seems to fight the constructive criticism loop.
Today, I found myself sitting before an unhappy Director as we strive to shift people around & the feelings of disrespect that enter in when someone is cut out of the loop. Tonight, before I jetted off from work, I decided to try something new – I thanked the Director for his feedback. The easy thing to do would be to carry the hurt feelings around, but all that really does is weigh you down. By thanking the person for their honest feedback, you are able to grow & become better and honestly, isn't that what we all want?
Next time you are faced with an opportunity to be given feedback, accept it & grow from that experience – you never know how the simple act of thankfulness may help you in the future.
